Deadline 1st October
Bringing your local community together to think about the Armistice and Armed Forces Today
After the success of the last round of silhouette funding in partnership with the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust, there is now another opportunity to host a fully funded installation in your community. These silhouettes can be placed in community halls, places of worship and places of education, bringing to mind those who went to war and did not return.
The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust is running a programme to fund the costs of up to 10 silhouettes for schools, community groups, places of worship and local charities. To apply, you will need to fill in a short form and commit to holding a community event in November 2018. This event does not need to be complex. It could involve local veterans from your community, parents or perhaps a local military base.
The event will need to provide an opportunity to reflect on the Armistice but also to think about the Armed Forces today. If awarded, the evocative silhouettes will belong to you and can be used again for remembrance in future years.
